I'm only just starting to try out this program, so I'm just following some tutorials but I'm already having problems, haha!

This is my event:



Note the four lines after the first comment. I'm trying to set those variables to the player's and the event's coordinates. I've got a text box that pops up when it's done setting them that should display all the variables, however...



Well that's not right.

I know I'm doing something wrong but I don't know what.

Hi,

When using the "Control Variables" command, you should usually select a "Single" variable from the top box, not a "Variable" variable.

When you select a "Single" variable, the variable you selected is modified.

When you select a "Variable" variable, the variable whose ID is stored in the variable you selected is modified instead.

That is also the difference between the "Variable" (= Single) and "Variable ID" (= Variable) option from the bottom box.

A-ha! Thanks so much! That's exactly what it was. :guffaw:

That's a mistake I'll only have to make once! Glad I got that out of the way early. BD

Hey @Pharonix, just wondering what you're up to lately and if you've had an opportunity to check out the LTBS thread in the past few days...(a couple of us could really use your expertise). Hope you are well and Happy Thanksgiving!
Anyone know the best size image to put in signature?
Well, the local collections agency is hiring... bleh. I'm not rude enough for them to hire me. Even the people they collect FOR don't like dealing with them. >.>
